      Answer

      Because you don't have to plug it in of course. For me, at night, I always lay in bed browsing on my phone before turning in. Now, when I'm done I simply lay it down on my nightstand on top of this charger to charge overnight. I don't need to fumble with a cable in the dark or if plugging it in before turning off the lights, have to be limited with the phone attached to the cord as I'm browsing in bed. Also, it's nice at other times for me too. I like being able to just put the phone down on the end table of my couch in the living room, pick it back up to go to the bathroom, lay it back down, pick it back up to check a notification, then lay it back down etc, all the while without having to plug it in, unplug it, plug it back in, or have any cords laying on me or in the way. It's not life changing, but it's nice and convenient.

        Answer

        Depends on how thick the case is, since the charger can only transmit the electrons 2-3mm away at best. I can hold my S6 Edge, with the wallet case on, slightly off the charger and it'll still charge. So as long as your case isn't too thick, it'll work.

        How does it work?   (11 Answers)

        Do I need to buy another device to charge the wireless charger? How is it charged? Can I take the wireless charger to the job site with me without worrying about having a working outlet?

          Answer

          The wireless charger has to be plugged into an outline the whole time. The "wireless" part refers to the fact that no wires are plugged into your phone itself.

          Place the phone face down?   (10 Answers)

          I like to charge my phone face down at night so if it lights up when it's fully charged or I get a message it won't wake me up. Will phones charge on this pad if they are face down?

                  The Galaxy S5 will require the Wireless Charging Case, then this charger would work. As for the S4 Active it doesn't look like Samsung has any official wireless charging cases for this device, so that would be no for the S4 Active.
